Thanksgiving will be here before we know it, the perfect time to entertain family and friends as you gather around the table and count your blessings. But before you dust off the Christmas ornaments, here are some simple tips for decorating your home for the fall season.
1. Faux leaves: While they’re certainly no fun in the yard (unless you’re jumping into a pile footloose and fancy free), leaves can add some rustic touches to the inside of your home. Craft stores often carry beautiful silk leaves, which you can place inside of picture frames, upon shelves, or even in a vase with a fall arrangement. When paired with a cornucopia, you’ll have yourself a beautiful centerpiece for all to enjoy at the family table.
2. Orange and white: Nothing says autumn quite like the pairing of orange and white; it’s simple yet elegant. If you have white furniture, consider adding orange pieces for a fun color pop that catches the eye upon entering the room.
3. Pumpkins: Sure, Halloween is over, and you may not have planned to see another pumpkin until it’s baked in a pie on Thanksgiving Day. However, many stores carry décor pumpkins of all shapes, sizes, and colors. Some have lights, some are plain as if they came right out the patch, and others are adorned with jewels. Either way, they are perfect for creating a fall theme within your home. A popular choice during this time of year is a white pumpkin, which looks great stacked upon old books or pedestals.
4. Woodlands: Nature has some pretty beautiful creations, many best not brought inside of the home. However, décor pinecones, feathers, and owls bring just the right touch to your home for that cozy autumn feeling.
5. D.I.Y. Wall Sconce: For a rustic look, create your sconce using mason jars and twine. Add some warmth to the room by using LED candles and your favorite fall scented sticks.
6. Keep It Natural: Vamp up your fireplace mantle with antlers, wood, rope, and antiques.
